The goal of this page is to feature those books which are considered among the best of what Wikibooks has to offer, in an effort to raise standards in content development. Criteria for judging books, and rules about discussions, can be found at Wikibooks:Good books. When nominating a book for removal of featured book status, consider adding {{featured book removal}} to the book and notifying the primary or active contributors, as they may be able to address your concerns about the content.

Nominations for Removal edit

Basic Physics of Nuclear Medicine edit

The primary author has stated this book is no longer up to date with standard practice. This fails the Wikibooks:Good books criteria 4.

Accurate, comprehensive, and concise enough to effectively teach and learn from in its current state.

Unlike their author, I'm not in favor of deleting the book, and would support its reinstatement as a featured book should someone update them. It's a very niche subject though, so I'm unsure if we'll find someone who specializes in it anytime soon. --Mbrickn (discusscontribs) 05:52, 12 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

US History edit

Apparently has already been removed as a featured book, but still appears in the featured book rotation. --Mbrickn (discusscontribs) 05:55, 12 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have removed it from all lists of featured books now. --ЗAНИA  talk 08:49, 11 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nominations for Addition edit

Minecraft Speedrunning edit

The book is very well formatted, contains a lot of useful information, and despite game strategies being allowed for quite some time, and quite a few books being made, there are no any featured books in Shelf:Electronic games. Therefore I think that once we get to the point where some books are really good, like this book is, we should nominate them to serve as an example for others. -Gifnk dlm 2020 From Middle English Wikipedia 📜📖💻 (talk) 17:56, 17 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think there are still many improvements to be made .
KIV - Supposedly in this Wikibooks page Minecraft Speedrunning/Shipwrecks, it is mentioned there are three chest but assuming that the locations is fixed, it should specify WHERE the chests are. Or better need to add pictures. These are my two cents. In my opinion KIV until the author address this for all pages. MrAlanKoh (discusscontribs) 07:51, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The shipwreck issue has been resolved. Though this isn't a book im an expert at (never done a speedrun. I play slowly and just enjoy the ride). L10nM4st3r / Roar at me 21:16, 7 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikijunior:The Elements edit

  Support - well laid out, good content, great narrative.

The book "Wikijunior:The Elements" is suitable for this target group and has an appropriate and consistent definition. There is comprehensive information about the chemical elements and each chemical element has a chapter. This makes it a fairly thick book. It is up to date and also takes into account the new elements. It is accurate, comprehensive, and concise enough to effectively teach and learn from in its current state. Of course, further interesting information can be added to all elements. Wikiwau (discusscontribs) 08:24, 24 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Suggestion for the entry:

Wikijunior: The Elements

 

The target of Wikijunior:The Elements are children. The periodic table of the elements is a way of organizing all the known elements. The elements are grouped on the basis of their properties, it becomes easy to study and compare their properties.
